The 6th ICC is jointly organized by the Chemistry Department at King Saud University and the Saudi Chemical Society. The conference will be convened at Riyadh City during the period of 8 – 10 November 2016.
The conference has been held every two years since 1998. The last conference (5th ICC) was held in Abha City in April 2014 under the theme ‘Chemistry for Durable Globe and Society Welfare‘ It was attended by more than 500 scientists from several countries including a number of European countries, Japan, Canada, USA, Australia, Arabian countries as well as researchers and post-graduate students from Saudi universities.

The 6th ICC comes under the theme ‘New trends in Chemistry ‘ and aims to achieve the following objectives:

Bringing together the world’s scientist and expertise in order to help advancing scientific knowledge and in particular the new trends in chemistry and by sharing the most recent research findings.
Promote and enhance the scientific collaborations.
Address the challenges among essential areas such as energy, water, advanced materials, and environment.
Engage the graduate students and young chemists and improve their awareness by the recent applications of chemistry.

The conference covers six main topics that deal with challenging  in chemistry (listed in the table below)

The conference will also include keynote lectures which will to be delivered by prominent scientists in the relevant subject. In addition, the conference will be an interdisciplinary forum for fruitful exchange of knowledge on the latest experimental results and theoretical advances in chemistry. Post-graduate students and young researchers are also encouraged to present their work and interact with world class scientists. This conference is generously supported by many organizations that are committed to further strengthen the role of chemistry in our society.

The 6th ICC program will include a big number of lectures, three parallel sessions, poster sessions and exhibition.
In addition to the scientific atmosphere, you will also enjoy the generous Arabian hospitality  which is deeply rooted in history and tradition of Saudi Arabia. This will be through many of the social events which are integrated in the Conference program organized, which will also to constitute an informal platform for interaction between scientist and a chance of for relaxation after busy working days.
